Ready to feast?

Come Thursday, September 12, this city’s culinary artists rally to support Philadelphia’s performing artists with the 2013 Feastival event, a fabulous benefit for contemporary arts organization FringeArts and the Fringe Festival that gathers more than 75 Philadelphia chefs and live entertainers to raise funds for the city’s cultural economy.

Now in its fourth year, the blockbuster bash pairs culinary powerhouses Michael Solomonov, Audrey Claire Taichman and Stephen Starr as co-hosts, and features thrilling entertainment courtesy of FringeArts and the Fringe Festival.

Past events have seen the debut of new dishes, an incredible array of the city’s best bites, flowing libations, a silent and live auction, plus the added spectacle of acrobats swirling overhead, dancers swinging from the roof beams, costumed characters on stilts and models completely covered in silver body paint welcoming guests.

Tickets, which do come in at $250, are available online. The event does have a history of selling out, with more than 800 attendees expected, so scoop up passes before they are gone.

If the price tag seems hefty, know that all proceeds benefit FringeArts and the 2013 Fringe Festival, produced by Nick Stuccio, a marvelous celebration of Philadelphia arts that showcases unfiltered, contemporary and wildly creative performers from around the world.

See below to check out participating restaurants, and check back for more on the Fringe Festival and its awesome supporting bash.
